Reason for Sale
Our clients purchased this business in 2005 and after 10 years of owning and further developing this business, the existing shareholders have decided to prepare for retirement. They believe that the business and its next phase of growth would be best realised in the hands of new owners with the commitment, enthusiasm, and resources to drive the business forward.
The business is run on a day to day basis by the existing owners who are prepared to fully support an agreed hand-over period, as required by the purchaser.
This is a rare opportunity to acquire a small, profitable and market leading business. The company is long established and protected by significant barriers to entry having built a market reputation and brand, supported by its exclusive UK distribution rights and long term relationship with the manufacturer.

Further exciting growth could be achieved via both retail expansion and online. Alternatively, the business offers safe entry for a new operator looking to enter the specialist and premium retail sector.
